(6 WEEK PROGRAMME) $158.99 + HST**
Pre-requisite: successful completion of Family Pet - Level 1 or equivalent.
Off-leash interaction with other dogs is an essential component of developing good social skills. This programme gives an in-depth understanding of typical dog interaction and the appropriate human intervention to allow for safe and enjoyable playtime.
A well-socialized dog will be polite and not overly friendly without invitation, defuse rather than initiate conflict and give clear canine body signals that set necessary boundaries for safe social interaction. Safety may include both giving and receiving reprimands for social
infractions by other dogs. Owners will have increased ability to identify and interrupt high arousal levels that may lead to conflict. Using our unique “Gentle” cue combined with a reliable Recall, owners will enjoy the ability to allow greater freedom for your dog in off-leash
THE FIRST CLASS IS WITHOUT THE DOG IN ORDER TO ASSESS THE NEEDS OF THE DOGS WHO WILL BE PARTICIPATING.
*It is normal for dogs to have some level of excitement during the first class, this may result in barking, inability to concentrate and some sensitivity to encroachment in personal space. If your dog demonstrates excessive behaviour in any of these categories we will transfer you to a class designed specifically to address these issues.
